Throughout my time working with individuals from diverse backgrounds and life journeys I have found that the greatest inspiration to the human spirit is validation of one’s story and the uniqueness of that journey. The idea is to empower those to a balanced integrative path.
I am a registered Psychologist in the province of Alberta with experience and background working with children, adolescents and adults coping with Crisis, Trauma, Mental Health and Addictions. I work with individuals from a variety of cultural/ethnic, sexual, and spiritual identity backgrounds
As a registered psychologist my goals have been to assist and guide healing and develop one’s preferred way of being with emphasis on Solution-focused, Narrative, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral approaches to therapy. I have learned that our vulnerability is our strength when held with care and empowered to be resilient.
I offer assessment and counselling services to children, teens and adults. I also offer couples counselling.
